O’Connell Gets Fired Earlier Than Expected

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,
Tuesday night, in an interview with the Globe, Jacobs was adamant about the need for change, but added he would not do anything as a kneejerk reaction. He also said he wouldn't disclose those decisions in the media and, no matter what, no decisions would be made prior to the end of the season. Last night, reached by telephone during the Bruins-Sabres game, Jacobs made it clear he pushed aggressively, and was the lead voice, to dismiss O'Connell. ...So, what happened? In part, two more dreadful games happened, including a shootout loss to the Thrashers on Tuesday, with Jacobs in his Garden luxury box, no doubt wincing, for most of it. The mood in the building all night was almost funereal. No pulse. Not the least bit of anticipation or excitement.
